    Depending on which application you are using them for, you can enable or disable Speaker Compensation on either output pair independently. Speaker Compensation is to be used when the outputs of the GNX3000 will be played through a full range speaker system and emulates the rolled off response that a guitar cabinet normally provides without having to use one.

  • Page 33: Mic And Line Setups

    You can configure the MIC and LINE INPUTS routing for live performance and recording applications. The GNX3000 acts as a mixing device for MIC and LINE INPUTS, and can eliminate the need for a mixer when the outputs are to be plugged directly into a full-range powered speaker system.
